  • ...pertaining to a fauna page, kinda. 

    You know it is more of a point out of possibly incorrect information.  

    On the Fauna in the World of Avatar page and in the transcript for The Deserter it says Ming Snake.  I have several issues with this, the first being it doesn't make sense that it would be called 'Ming' that would  be like saying 'Grave's' Zebra.  It sounds like a distinct species, no other animal in Avatar has ever done that. Secondly, when I've watched the show I always thought they said mink snake, that makes a lot more sense.

  • How can I make a page like this ? 

      Loading editor
    • Erm, in all honesty I'm not entirely sure, since I have never made such a page myself. However, the standard procedure I use for making pages in general is to click the "Contribute" button on the upper right hand corner of any page, and then select "Add a page" on the drop-down list. Then it lets you type the title, and all [I think] you need to do it type your username, followed by a "/", and then the main title of the page.

    • Oh, and make sure you have "User:" at the beginning, to designate it as userspace.

        Loading editor
    • To create a page in your userspace, just go to the URL at the top, and type in:

      avatar.wikia.com/wiki/User:EarthAvatar5/Whateverthepagenameis

      where Whateverthepagenameis is the name of the subpage you want to create. This will take you to the page, and then you can click create, and add content as needed.

  • I'd like to ask you about my wonderful Book 2 theory.  Want to see it!? What do you think? Here it is..,.

    My hypothesis is that Korra, while under Unalaq’s watchful eye, is attempting to learn his ability to no avail, no matter how many times she tries she keeps failing.  We know that this ability is significant to this book as we have seen it three times in the information we got.  Once in the first episode, once in the clip we got a few weeks ago and the design on the Legend of Korra SDCC poster.  That being said, spirits are attacking the water tribe everyday with more and more ferocity.  It is an onslaught of attacks and Unalaq, while trying to keep the peace cannot control them all, or so he says.  He puts more and more pressure on Korra to learn the technique to save the ransacked water tribe but she just becomes more and more frustrated.  Her frustration is starting to eat her away and this causes a lot of tension between her and Mako, not because it is his fault, but she takes it out on him. 

    In reality Unalaq is using Korra for his own personal campaign.  He wants control of both tribes as we know, he is causing the spirits to run rampant on the South, he is hoping to make it look like it is happening by accident but in reality, since he is so spiritually knowledgeable, he found a way to start tearing apart the barrier between the worlds making it ever so easy for the spirits to cross over and run amuck.  His original plan is that he wants to scare people into following the North, saying that he is the only one who can help them. And he wants to trick Korra, the most perfect source of spiritual energy in the world to use her connections for evil, even though she sees what she is doing as good.  Tonraq however, sees through his brother’s dastardly schemes and starts a massing an army to combat not only the spirits but his brother as well.  Meanwhile, we get a few flashbacks into the brother’s history to see where this conflict between them began. 

    Korra eventually sees her uncle for what he is and goes crawling back to her parents and Tenzin.  She apologizes and seeks out Tenzin in the air temples.  Mako in the meantime is either going to go with Korra or stay in the Southern Water Tribe to help Tonraq fight Unalaq.  I believe it is the later for a couple reasons. First, he and Korra are experiencing tension so he believes they should spend some time away from one another. Secondly, he wants to be of use and Air Temples don’t seem like his thing, so he stays in the South Pole to help Tonraq and become his second in command. 

    Meanwhile, Varrick has moved to Republic City to be more of a help to Asami who is trying to return Future Industries to the top.  But Varrick is experiencing a whole mess of problems, his ships are being attacked and any effort the two of them put into Asami’s campaign goes unsuccessful.  This is causing major tension between them, Asami seeks out Hiroshi for advice but he is of no help.  In between the business ventures and her own personal demons with Hiroshi she starts wanting a confidante, a boyfriend.  Her attention falls upon Varrick, who is currently in a romantic engagement with the gold digging beauty Ginger.  Asami, sees Ginger for what she is and starts to plant the seeds with Varrick, who is having none of it, thus adding to the tensions. 

    At the same time, Bolin, Desna and Eska are having their own doings.  My guess is that they are in Republic City, as Bolin is now officially Asami’s ‘tigershark’ and assistant.  He and Varrick have a few laughs together, but most of his time is spent either, with Asami or with his, now, girlfriend Eska. She and Desna never split though so Bolin has to suffer with the third wheel syndrome caused by Desna’s presence.  He is desperately is trying to impress Eska, but Desna disrupts his flow, causing him to look stupid a lot.  Eska, while still engaging in her social experiment with Bolin is actually starting to warm up and not be so stoic, and unfeeling.  This is causing mounting tensions between brother and sister and leads them to a little bit of a tiff, probably the first in a while.

    Korra on the other hand, now, albeit momentarily, flying solo is heading to the air temples.   When she gets there Tenzin welcomes her back with open arms, and once she tells Tenzin and Co. what is happening they now desperately are looking for answers in the ancient ruins.  Tenzin teaches and it is working, better than Unalaq’s methods and Korra eventually realizes her potential.  Tenzin has not only been teaching Korra but his children as well.  Jinora, as officially learned how to completely detach from the world, as is the goal for airbenders, and is now able to meditate into the spirit world.  Together, she and Korra now enter into the spirit world for guidance as to how to fix the conflict escalating in the Water Tibes.  The two are searching for answers and encounter a number of problems, including malevolent spirits, but they also learn more and more about the spirits than they ever could hope. Jinora informs Korra about Wan Shi Tong’s Library and tells her if anyone knows what they need to learn it is him.  They make it to the library with some help from other spirits. Wan Shi Tong is none to impress to see them, but after a great deal of persuading he tells them of Wan, the first avatar who separated the spirit and material worlds ten thousand years ago.  He tells them where to find him in the spirit world and expects them to heed caution as the road to Wan is very dangerous and the will meet a great number of threatening spirits along the way.   They thank him and start their hunt for Wan, Korra, speaks to her other past lives for guidance and they keep her on the right path.  All the while Korra and Jinora are meditating in and out of the spirit world as to find clues how to get to Wan.  The group is dealing with a number of things at the air temples, lemurs, animals, spirits etc.  Tenzin, while being bothered with his children and siblings is starting to see the importance of what Katara was telling him about.  He starts to lighten up and the siblings grow closer. 

    Korra and Jinora are always on spirit world missions every time they arrive at another temple and the scenery changes every time.  They run into old favorites like Koh and reveal more to Korra about her past lives.  Eventually, they make contact with Wan. 

    By now Beginnings 1 and 2 have been aired so we know about how the avatar started…

    Korra, talks to Wan and he tells her how he split the world all those millennia ago.  She thanks him greatly and once again leaves the spirit world. 

    With her newly acquired knowledge the group now returns back to the Southern Water Tribe where things are not going well. Unalaq is a frightening enemy and is well prepared for his brother’s attack.  Tonraq might even be scarred up.   Mako’s and Korra’s romance starts to rekindle as they’ve been apart for a while and have learned to respect the other, as distance provides prospective.   Asami, Varrick, Bolin, Desna and Eska have returned as well.  Asami and Varrick have either settled their differences or is a perfectly happy couple. In either case they have worked together to build a new battleship combat Unalaq’s forces.  Bolin, of course has come to assist not only his friend Varrick, his boss Asami but his brother as well.  By now he has quit pro- bending and is focused on more important matters.  Eska is appalled by what her father is doing and sides with Bolin, whose allegiance of course is with Korra and Tonraq.  Desna, is torn, he does not know who to side with, his sister and uncle or his great and powerful father.  Eventually, he chooses Tonraq, Eska and Korra. He and his sister help combat Unalaq’s forces (the scene in the trailer we see the two surfing) Korra in the meantime is fighting Unalaq one on one.  Everyone else, including Tenzin and Co. are all fighting spirits or Unalaq’s forces.  Korra tries to persuade her uncle but he is having none of it, all he is concerned with is his quest for power.  She fights him aboard a ship (another scene in the trailer) and eventually prevails over him.  The spirits however, are still attacking even though the head honcho Unalaq has been defeated and detained by Korra.  People are running at spirits, ready to attack and spirits are running at people ready to attack with Korra caught in the middle.  In the exact same way we see Wan in the middle Korra goes into the Avatar State between the two sides who stop dead in their tracks.  Korra, seals the spirit world in the manner in which Wan told her how and the spirits disappear.  Korra is the only one who maintains the ability to cross between the worlds, except for on the solstices. 

    Now the triumphant masses of people celebrate victory.  Korra and Mako embrace, as well as all the other couples.  (Now this last part can go two ways) 1) Tonraq is now appointed chief of the south, the real one has been declared incompetent or is dead.  2) With no leader of the Northern Water Tribe Desna and Eska must take on the responsibilities of their father, Eska now breaks up with Bolin, which she does not want to do, and must assume her duties.  Tonraq suggest that she rule over the southern tribe as they need a new, more spiritual leader to preserve customs, and Desna preside over the north (based on the sexist attitude of the north this shouldn’t be a stretch of the imagination. 

    Korra, now a fully realized, all powerful, spiritual Avatar ends the conflict and looks onward towards her future with her boyfriend Mako. Varrick and Asami, now are a rich, business, powerhouse couple.  Bolin is severely depressed but understand why Eska did what she had to.  Now the two leaders of the tribe once again call for a festival (like the one in episode one except tradition is observed) where the north and south are now joined as allies once again.  Tenzin and company, bound by love, are one big happy family which makes Katara overwhelmed with joy.   Tonraq and Senna are both glad to have their daughter back and now feel comfortable enough to let her be the avatar she has always destined to be. Lastly, Unalaq is taken to Republic City and imprisoned. There he can be under the watchful eyes of Korra, Mako, Tenzin and Co. and Lin (who might appear just once, you know cause it’s jail and she’s the chief of police.)

    1,884 words later. 

    The sad part is I could go into more detail.

  • I saw your edit to the "Kaya's Town" article that updated to the full comic ref. And that's great, but so you know, in case you don't know already, Thailog (or at least, Thailog seems the likely candidate) is going to implement all of those references in a similar fashion to that of the episode refs, and the comic ref will therefore have a simplified template like the episode refs. So, you don't need to worry about changing every instance of the old refs when you see them. They'll be looking a lot spiffier in a matter of weeks, I'm sure.

  • I think that english words with -us in the end are pluralized by removing the -us and replacing it with an -i.

    • That rule only applies to words of Latin origin. I don't think that word falls under Latin etymology, as I checked on Merriam-Webster and they say the proper plural is "nexuses", even if it sounds odd.

  • Any suggestion that SS is a waterbender is speculation. Just because he is wearing blue doesn't mean he is a waterbender, so we shouldn't be suggesting that he is.

    • @HoT: Except blue will always still *imply* waterbender, as an essential standard for the Avatar World, regardless of the one exception. I don't think you're taking in the actual meaning of the word "imply". When I use the word, it isn't being used to refer to definitive proof, it's only to show that there is support for whatever point I'm referring to. So, in the example you gave for Toza, it would indeed be true that Toza's blue clothing implies waterbending, as that is a standard set by the show. What's not true is that the blue outfit proves it, since seeing an outfit isn't the same as seeing him bend. But for Shady Shin, we're only making a point that there is a reason to believe he is a waterbender, hence the specific use of the word *imply*. Saying there is an implication of that is not speculation, we're only saying how one thing supports another, not that it is conclusive proof. And it's only a trivia point, and the trivia section is customarily more lenient to content anyway.

    • It doesn't matter what blue implies. The fact that he has never seen bending means that we don't know what bender he is. Stating things like "it's implied that" is basically saying the same as "he is", which is speculation. If we put any such notice on our pages, that means that we acknowledge the fact that he is most likely a waterbender, and since we don't cater speculation, we cannot host such trivias. As such, the point has been removed from the page. People can speculate and make that remark all they want in the comment section or a fanon or wherever, but as long as there is no official confirmation that Shady Shin is in fact a waterbender, nothing that could "imply" that should be added to the page.

  • I saw you changing the names for the LoK special to Avatar Beginnings (1/2), but all the sources I can find have it as just Beginnings (1/2). Do you have a source for it being different?
